Archaeology - Automatic 3D Modelling of Excavation Sites

In this collaboration with the archaeology department of Kiel university, a scene reconstruction has been performed based upon two photographs. The images are automatically matched and robustly calibrated providing a sparse set of verified correspondences. Finally a depth map can be produced containing for each pixel the distance of the imaged object from the camera center. This can then be "backprojected" to yield a 3D surface model.
